IBM ISS announces IPS for small offices

GX 3002 gateway tool released

IBM's Internet Security System division has announced an intrusion-prevention system, the GX 3002, designed primarily to guard against attacks against small branch offices or machines, such as bank ATMs or kiosks.

The ISS Proventia Network Intrusion Prevention System GX30002 is an gateway-based appliance intended to support a single-network segment at up to 10Mpbs throughput, says Jim Brennan, ISS marketing manager. The GX300 is based on the same intrusion-prevention functionality found in higher-speed ISS equipment.

"The GX 3002 works in three basic modes, which are blocking; pure detection and monitoring; and an in-line simulation that lets you see what you would have blocked if you turn blocking on," Brennan says. The GX 3002 can be managed via the ISS central management console, SiteProtector. It can also be managed via a simple Web browser interface.

Brennan says the GX 3002, priced at US$4,000, is available in an appliance model he described as a two-port Ethernet "desktop form factor."

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
